Politics SSS Clears Saraki of Alleged N310m Theft



The SSS has cleared Senate President Bukola Saraki and other members of the upper chamber of an alleged theft of N310m.

There have been numerous reports of the robbing of a Bureau de Change operator of a N310m by an SSS agent, Abdulrasheed Maigari. It's reported that the money belonged to Bukola Saraki.

A senior SSS official on Sunday night refuted the report. “The story making the rounds that the sum of N310 million belonging to the Senate President was stolen in 2015 is a malicious falsehood,’’ he said according to ThisDay.

“From our investigation, the money in question did not belong to the Senate President or any member of the National Assembly for that matter. The investigation conducted by the DSS and the confessional statement made by Abdulrasheed Maigari, a suspect in the case, did not support this claim at all,” he said.

“Maigari’s recent claim in the media is nothing but a made up story to achieve a hidden motive," he added.

The fact that Maigari, who is currently standing trial for an armed robbery case, could make up such a false claim was a further indication of how criminally minded he was, he said.
